Melissa Rosenberg: I think People Often Confuse Chemistry On-Screen With Chemistry Off-Screen



From Marc Malkin on E!:

Just because Robert Pattinson and Kristin Stewart are such the perfect match on screen, Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg thinks it's time we mind our own business about what goes once the cameras stop rolling.

"Their chemistry on film is so extraordinary," Rosenberg told us at the Entertainment Weekly/Women In Film pre-Emmy party. "They were beautifully cast for those roles and their chemistry is amazing. I think people often confuse chemistry on-screen with chemistry off-screen.

"I think people should just enjoy what's on-screen and leave their privates lives wherever they are," she continued. "I don't actually know what they are."

So what scoop did Ms. Rosenberg tell us about our fave vampire movies? Read on to find out…

First up, Breaking Dawn. Rosenberg is not allowed to could not confirm she's going to be tackling the script. "That's still up in the air," she said. "We're still talking and nothing's been decided."

Eclipse's Riley (Xavier Samuel) will have a much bigger presence in the movie than he has in the Stephenie Meyer's novel. "This is a character that's really interesting and I got a chance to flesh him out," Rosenberg said, adding, "It's going to be really interesting watching the relationship between Riley and Victoria [Bryce Dallas Howard] growing."

As for the next flick to be released, New Moon, she said, "There's a lot of things that go on in New Moon that expand on the book. The conflict at the end with the Volturi is an example. Building on them is going to be really intriguing for the fans."

Among the other guests at the EW/WIF bash was Twilight's original Victoria, Rachelle Lefevre, who is doing just fine since her dramarama with Summit Entertainment, thank you very much. "To be honest, I sort of feel like I have everything," the ginger beauty glowed. "I have an amazing boyfriend, I love my house, I'm wearing a great Jay Godfrey dress and I'm at an Emmy party."

And we can attest to the amazing boyfriend, The Tudors star Jamie Thomas King—well, at least what he looks like. We got a peek of him at the bash and he is quite the hottie.

Gozde: I agree with what Geena Davis Melissa Rosenberg says about leaving their private lives alone but there is no denying that they have mad chemistry. Chemistry that tends to burn and make half of the fans crazy :) Remember the motto people: "If he is not shagging me I don't care who he shags". Adopt the it, you'll be happier :))

The thing that matters the most is what we see onscreen, and as everyone who has seen twilight has said, Rob and Kristen have out of this world chemistry together! Cant wait to see their extraordinary chem in New Moon!

But, not going to lie, whether they are together or not, the glimpses we have seen from their offscreen chem, it is pretty amazing too!

Who gives a crapsten????

No better words ever spoken!!!

Totally agree with both Gozde and Melissa. Now if only the masses of fans would too! It's like separating church and state, people can't seem to separate the on-screen characters from off-screen.

rpattz-turn-me-on said...

oh pleaseeee this is Ridiculous *yawn-roll eyes* rob and kris off screen chemistry is even more intense and stronger.but what ever makes folks feel better.

Anonymous said...

Why has she felt the need to expand the role of Riley? Don't understand the need for that.

rpattzgirl survived Rob! said...

Have you seen the set photos of the Newborms coming up out of the water?? Really creepy looking-I think it's kinda cool they've added new layers, they did it in NM, so I'm sure it will work here..

As long as they romance & leg hitch is in there, I'm happy.

Golnaz said...

rpattz-turns-me-on, IA. I really dont think the majority of people who think Rob/Kristen are together offscreen are confusing them with Kris/Rob onscreen at all.

People thinking Rob/Kris together comes from how they act and look at each other at interviews, premieres, and off screen things. Has nothing to do with them onscreen.

If anything, the way they look at each other offscreen is hotter than on PG rated Twilight.

But, IA, at the end of the day its their business. And if we stop obsessing over it, maybe the Paps will lay off them

rpattz-turn-me-on said...

if folks want to live in a false sense of security and believe R and K have no Off Screen chemistry then good for them,iam going to join this club and sing the theme song .....WHO GIVES A CRAPSTEN.

Karina said...

Love how she put it---be happy you get the onscree chemistry, let them do whatever they offscreen in peeace. Melissa is right, the poor kids give us enough, they don't need to give us a full rundown on their private life as well.

They have a weird job, where filming a movie is so much like summer camp for very hot people. All of us looking in just want to hang with the hot summer camp kids...

Karina said...

rpto---you make a good point too though. Most people aren't confusing Kristen and Robert with Edward and Bella. That's always a silly assessment, and I think Melissa was talking more about the fact that people already get enouch of their chemistry onscreen-we shouldn't insist on watching their offscreen chemistry as well.

"Most people aren't confusing Kristen and Robert with Edward and Bella. That's always a silly assessment,..."

Oh really? The fans want them together so badly that even before they got close to each other there was speculation of them in a relationship. Of course they have chemistry on-screen and off, that's what is driving this franchise. I'm not saying they are together and I'm not saying they aren't together, they obviously share a special bond and I really don't care. But to say that some fans aren't confusing the two is also "a silly assessment."

Karina said...

Hi linda rose-I think most people over 12 can draw a line between fiction and reality honestly. I think at this point, the franchise is less about Twilight and more about Robert Pattinson. Most people found Twilight the movie sub-par on various levels. The movie itself did not win over fans. Robert did.

So much of the fervor involving Robert and Kristen has more to do with all the publicity junkets last year. I do think Summit, as some have already pointed out, encouraged the idea that Robert was single, but harbored an innocent crush on Kristen, who was known to have a boyfriend. Everyone was happy with this scenario, because Robert is single yet not sleeping with Paris Hilton and talking about his crush on Kristen in interviews almost weekly in some form.

All this "Robsten" stuff is way bigger than Edward and Bella--it's about what was put in motion partly by the publicity machine last year and partly because Robert and Kristen did show a certain camaraderie and chemistry offscreen in interviews.

Look at how "Edward" has morphed since Twilight even--he's less "Edward" and much more "Robert" in appearance. Robert owns this franchise, not Edward. lol

rpattz-turn-me-on said...

well put @lindarose...i hate when people try to insult my intelligence.

rpattz-turn-me-on said...

so true Rob is driving the twilight machine,this is Bigger than edward/bella now,Rob is the one with the power not summit,he holds their Balls in his hands,if he gets upset all rob has to do is Squeeze and they will buckle.

@Karina ~ Most people over 12 can draw the line between reality and fiction, but these same people want something so badly that they only see what they want to see. But you have very valid points. Rob is the driving force to this franchise and Summit knows it. But I don't agree that Edward has morphed into Robert in appearance. Just because Rob "borrows" the clothes from his character roles doesn't mean that they have morphed. LOL

Khou said...

They both definitely have chemistry on & off screen. I think they also have a very special bond regardless of whether or not they are together in real life. They both have this presence onscreen that I think it would be very easy for them to have chemistry with just about anyone. I have not seen Rob's other movies other than Twilight and a little bit of Harry Potter--just the parts with him in it--but I've seen Kristen in other movies and I think she's great. I really liked her in Into the Wild. I think if you put either of them in any movie with any actors that can actually act, they would be great. Blah blah blah...

RPnKSaddict said...

I just enjoy watching them onscreen and off screen. I guess I don't much care if it's romantic or just close friends.
As actors and as the roles they play.
They just facinate me in way I've never been facinated before.
I hope they both have a long sucessful happy career.

Shani said...

Melissa comments are null and void because she knows nothing about them on a personal level. When does she even talk to them or see them??

Treasure_7 said...

I agree they do have chemistry that just makes us want to see more of them together.

keely said...

LOL Chris is awesome :-) I just wanted to add something, maybe because I just realized how different the information the press gives us in America is compared to the situation in Europe. I read the InStyle, today, which has it´s 10 years anniversary here in Germany and they printed an interview with Kristen as well. I really liked her answers ( Didn´t know she´s gonna design some T-Shirts with Nikki Reed). Whatever, since this is not a Kristen side ;-) But they also asked her about the rumors that she and Robert had an affair and this was what she said according to the magazine: We get on well and became great frinds while shooting. But beside Robert I found other new frinds on the Twilight-Set, too. A lot of people don´t understand, that women and men actually can be just frinds, without concerning an sexuell connection.
I´m sorry I don´t have a scanner at home, but if you should be interested, Goz, I would scan it on work...I don´t want to say they are not dating or there is no chemistry, I´m still sticking to Goz´s motto. But I mean those Tabloids know what a lot of people want to hear and how they can make money out of that.

Bottom line, enjoy the movies and all the hoopla that comes with it, don't confuse bella/edward with the actors. And let the actors (all in the cast) live their private lives privately.

Unknown said...

@Shani I think it's kinda much to say that Melissa's comments are "null and void," non? I mean, she's closer to them than any of us and Ted C. and all of his 'sources'. So I think her comments have a little more weight.

Just my 2 cents.

Diane said...

Good points, Karina. While there may be some very young or naive fans who confuse the actors with their characters, that's a generally fallacious argument. Right up there with only liking Rob cause he's Edward.

For most of us, Edward was the gateway to Rob, but once we became intrigued with the countless interviews and glimpses of his personality, it was clear that Rob isn't Edward. In fact, he isn't like any celebrity we've ever seen.

I bless the day that boy walked out on media training. In Taylor, we see what he was supposed to become - a good little party-liner. Instead we get genuine, multi-talented Rob with his flaws and insecurities, his seriousness and his off-the-wall humor. All in a package that is at once adorkable and the epitome of male sexuality.

I, for one, am just glad he's in the world, and anything that makes him happy makes me happy.

Gozde said...

Keely, you know I'd love the scans and translation. InStyle is a reliable source and I know that with New Moon approaching the Euopean mags will have different interviews than US.

Tesekkurler :))

And I agree with Irene. Melissa is more reliable than any of the other "sources" . She is on set a lot of times to re-write etc and she knows them better than Ted's ass...I mean source...

Kathy#1 said...

whether they are a couple or not their chemistry off-screen is super hot and super real..all you have to do is look at the videos and them always looking at each other, heads close together at things like KOA..i hope they are together but it wouldn't bother me one bit if they are good friends.

Kathy#1 said...

Very nice post Diane...i wish i had said it...

rpattz-turn-me-on said...

@shani well said as always the voice of reason.(clap)

monika said...

Melissa is right, you can't compare/confuse their on screen and off screen chemistry, the latter is so much more intense, than what we see on screen.

"I think people should just enjoy what's onscreen and leave their privates lives wherever they are," she continued. "I don't actually know what they are."

She doesn't know...that says quite a lot right there.

And lmao @ people trying to make it seem like some kind of denial or something...grasping at straws now aren't we? lol

monika said...

People should stop seeing RP as E and KStew as B,and start seeing them as what they are, two normal(as normal as you can be in showbiz) young people who happen to be famous actors, and in a relaysh.

skorpia said...

WOW! how hard is it to release a statement that they're not together? well-looks like we have another 2 years of them plastered all over the tabloids. Cant wait for this to be over. Im sick of RObsten. LOVE ROB! and for those who say "they need theyre privacy" theyre in the wrong line of work then. Hollywood is fueled by whos the flavor of the month. Looks,controversy,lies,sex,drugs,-anything to sell sell sell!

monika said...

I don't really like what she says about Victoria/Riley, Riley especially, he's such a minor character, if his role got expanded too much for this movie at the expense of E/B for example, am gonna be pissed

rpattz-turn-me-on said...

Exactly!!! rob's rep shot down the mirror interview and a couple of days ago kris rep shot down a rumor she had cut her hair for theVMA,but with the romance rumors they are keeping quiet,now why is that?? i dont need TED C or some crappy mag to confirm to me what is obvious.and for this chick to assume some fans cant tell reality from fiction is totally insulting.

monika said...

lmao She didn't deny anything, she says she doesn't know, that's saying a lot, you're taking her words out of context to keep your little fantasy alive, how unsurprising lol
And I don't need Ted/magazines to believe in Robsten goddammit, most Robsten fans don't need him/don't believe what rags print
I trust my instinct, and my own two eyes

skorpia said...

I just wish he didnt have to go through Pedros (peter f's) on twitter. I still think Peters sisters,cousins,dog posted it.Get an account ROb and tell these mofos off.

monika said...

Robsten fans ship them not cause of E/B, but cause of their OFF screen chemistry. R/K chemistry is much better than E/B chemistry. Don't know why people still think shippers want them together cause of their characters, it's just not true.

i have been reading all comments about on/off chemistry...i have to stick with goz's theory "if he aint shagging me..." i did not want to comment about robsten anymore but here i am again. i really dont care if they are or not together. dont get me wrong i like kristen but i dont care who he is with, i am a rob fan. he could be screwing anyone and i wouldn't care, i would still be a fan. all of the questions and comments about his personal life, keeps him more private and secluded and i miss all of the great open interviews and pics.

rpattz-turn-me-on said...

SADLY!!! lets get real here....... if R and K wanted privatecy they choose the wrong line of work,when you are a politician or an actor or any profession which have you in the public eye there is no such thing as Privatecy,all celebs go through this its part of being rich and famous, now i wish Rob had privatecy,i wish the paps would leave him alone but sadly with this line of work its not going to happen,its like being a Doctor but are afraid of seeing blood,it comes with the profession.i do hope he is coping with it without+going+crazy.

Shani said...

Irene- Like Monica said "I trust my own two eyes". I don't go by what Ted C says. I've been thinking that they had great chemistry and would make a wonderful couple way back in December when I first saw Twilight.

But Kris later told everyone that she had a boyfriend. So Rob and her WERE JUST FRIENDS until this year. And now they are together. MA is out of the picture dating other people.I still have that link of him out on a date if you want to see it.

Shani said...

Oh and let me add I do trust my instinct.

Irene- A lot of the cast didn't even know. So how is a script writer going to know???

Unknown said...

Shani--
"So how is a script writer going to know???"
I'm not saying that Melissa's *right*, she's not denying anything (like she said she doesn't know).
I'm just saying that to state that her comments are "null and void" are a bit strong to say cause she sees more of them than we do via pics and interviews.

But now I reread what u said, I think ur "null and void" comment might have been under the assumption that Melissa was saying that they are *not* dating?

Anyways, @ ur last post, if the cast doesn't know, how can we be so sure? <-- just me playing devil's advocate, i'm team on-the-fencesten. lol

appreciated ur reply!

AP said...

Regarding Riley: Well, those who write or read fan fiction based on "Twilight" might understand the impulse of a writer to make the story somewhat her 'her own.':) I don't think she's added reams of dialogue, just a little visualization of backstory that might fill in gaps for those 3 or 4people in the audience who haven't read the Series or won't have seen the earlier films. I know, I know - who gives a shit about them - but she's kinda obligated to make the movie coherent in it's own right.

Rob's wardrobe: I think it's being dictated more by the director's visual style than Rob's clout in demanding plaid. The clothing he wears in New Moon is more tailored and formal - blazers, shirts with cuffs - than it was in "Twilight" matching Chris's approach. I think the more casual clothing in the third film is to do with David's take on Eclipse. It will be far more visceral, close-up, and gritty.

The chemistry Rob and Kristen have,however, will continue without major changes during the next two films. Fade out.

Shani said...

Irene- Yeah I was going off the idea of her trying to say there was no chance they could be together. Even though I feel she has no idea. Like she said it's their personal lives. So right there says she's not being nosy into what's going on with them. So she really does NOT have a clue.Plus, she is not around them day to day.And she does not hang out with them. Isn't she in California???

roxiegirl said...

@Diane - love your post and agree 100%. Twilight/Edward was the gateway to Rob for me as well. I am just looking so forward to his future and watching him in movies, red carpets, interviews, etc.

November will be an awesome month...New Moon, People's Sexiest Man Alive issue - and who else in this world could it possibly be?? and maybe even cover and serious interview in Vanity Fair. Oh why can't November be here tomorrow!!

Shani said...

Irene- I forgot to say.

Peace...Love...and soul train.LOL

Unknown said...

Lol Shani. How 'bout Peace, Love, and Rob's [insert fav. body part]! BTW ur avi is all kinds of nastylicious!

katie said...

Information from interviews are not contained by national borders anymore in the internet age. That's why those fake interviews in the UK got instant press earlier last month the minute they were published. Any direct quote regarding Robert on Kristen or vice versa will get instant media attention, since both of them have not commenteed on one another publicly since the beginning of the summer.

jmm4832 said...

I really don't give a crapsten whether Rob and Kris are together or not. I do feel in a way they've already "come out" as dating in their actions like staying in the same hotel room, lol. Anyway, it's pointless to keep speculating cause they're never going to come out and admit it. If they're not together then their actions will say that too.
